A Boy's Story

Last week I stopped at my LQS with my mother in law. I am always looking to see what new things she has since I hadn't been there in nearly 2 months.
I found a few fabrics I liked, mostly for my stash.
The best find, in my opinion, was the book "A Boy's Story" by Ami Downs.
I had seen Ami's booth at quilt market and loved these projects.
With no boy to quilt for, I passed on buying the book.

Now that my sister is having a boy, I DO have a reason to have this book LOL.
So I bought it.
I am planning on putting the robot applique on a onesie.
The possibilities are endless.

And I love this quilt too with the big stitch quilting.
So if you are looking for an inspiring boy quilt book, this is it.

I have two sons and it is sometimes hard to find quilts and other goodies that are just for them! Thanks for the heads up!

What a great book. I love to find great resources for patterns like that.

I couldn't resist this book either because I have boys (1 big - hubby & 1 small- 5yo)and its so hard to find great boy patterns. I thought there was great patterns for both big and small boys. I haven't made anything from it yet but wanted it in my library.

What a great book! Thank you for the preview/review! I wonder if it's too late for me to add to my Santa wish list, or at this stage in the game I may be on the naughty list. Oh, well, there is always next year! But I don't think I can wait that long to not have a copy!
Happy holidays!

What a neat little boy inspiration book. I will have to look for it at my local shop next time I am there. I am always up for new ideas.
